Start Your Fashion Career Here!

Want to get on the fashion career ladder but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you are an employer wanting to grow your company and pass on industry skills? Our Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeship programme offers a unique combination of training and career specific work experience. The apprentice will be working with one employer for the entire course therefore providing an opportunity for both the employer and the individual to develop a long and sustainable relationship.

CEO Jenny Holloway comments: “A big shout to Selvie (pictured above) who has now completed her Level 3 apprenticeship in pattern making. She came in during Covid-19 to finish off her practical work and she was an absolute delight. When it comes to fashion apprenticeships Fashion-Enter / FTA is proud to be England’s leading fashion and textiles provider offering quality training at all levels.”
